Operations & Information Management
Operations managers are like architects; they see the blueprints behind the walls, and the staff power behind the construction. In other words, operations managers know how to build and run a business.
Operations and Information Managers design and implement the key operations that help a business function, and then they strive to continually make it more effective and efficient. Operations managers are always five steps ahead, synthesizing information to guide businesses toward the optimal decision.
